YMMV / God, the Devil and Bob

  • Acceptable Targets:
    • When the Devil abandons his job and removes evil from the world, God asks Bob to talk him out of it so people's decisions can continue to have moral weight.
      Bob: Gee, I don't know that I'm all that comfortable with the idea of going to Hell.
      God: Oh, for Pete's sake, you've been to Branson, Missouri. It's not that different!
    • The televangelist from the premiere episode, who promptly kicked Bob out of the TV station upon hearing that none of his ideas would bring in any money.
  • Fridge Brilliance: In "Bob's Father" the Devil says that he made up Purgatory and that it wasn't true. Purgatory is never mentioned at all in the Bible, so he's almost certainly not lying.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The show did not do well in the United States (mostly due to complaints about the content being blasphemous), but it got better reception outside of the U.S., particularly in the U.K.
  • Heartwarming Moments:
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Alan Cumming voices the Devil. Three years later, he'd be playing Nightcrawler, a character who has a Devil-like appearance but is a devout Catholic.
  • Ho Yay:
    • The episode where the Devil doesn't feel appreciated by God is played out like an old married couple going through relationship counseling.
  • Too Good to Last: Funny without being outrageous, moralizing without being preachy. Sadly, it was beset by Moral Guardian protests for being blasphemous.
  • The Woobie: While he definitely isn't most perfect character on the show, the stuff Bob goes through during the show will make you feel bad for the guy.
